PTFA Report October 2017

The Parents, Teachers and Friends’ Association of St Mary’s Catholic Academy would like to let everyone involved with our school know how much we value your support and welcome you all to be a part of our PTFA.

Through the years, we have thrived and succeeded in our fundraising efforts only with the help and support from our parents, grandparents, staff and friends and we hope for this to always continue.


With effect from the Summer Term the PTFA will become an 'Events Team' without the previous roles of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary etc.

The Events committee and members meet every half term and everyone is always welcome at our meetings.


PTFA Calendar

A further meeting has been arranged for Tuesday 22nd May at 7.30pm, the venue is the Horn & Trumpet.



We always need helping hands at our events. If you are interested in offering your support, please speak to Mrs Hudson or Mrs Edge at the School Office or email 



Have you got any of the following items?

  • Unwanted gifts                                                                 
  • Chocolates /sweets
  • Books
  • Gift vouchers
  • Unwanted toys in good condition

We are always grateful of any donations that we could use at our fundraising events. If you would like to pass anything on, please pass to the office.


Bags to School

We do regular collections of unwanted clothing and paired shoes. In the event of an arranged collection, your child will bring home a bag for this purpose but if you are having a clear out in the meanwhile, we will happily accept the clothes to put toward the collection when it takes place.


Stikins Clothing Labels

The school does urge everyone to ensure that every child’s items of clothing are clearly labelled.  Save yourself a lot of trouble by ordering pre-printed labels with your child’s name on. Easy to attach to clothing, no need for ironing or sewing them on and they last well. They can also be used on lunchboxes, pencil cases, school bags, etc.

We have a fundraising account with a company called Label Planet and if you order your labels and quote our fundraising number, we earn commission for the PTFA.

Simply go to: and order the product you prefer and quote our fundraising number:  21030 at checkout.
